This Deal Is Meaningless !



My sources, which include my own eyeballs, tell me that Hicks is another decent defensive outfielder who can't hit a lick.

If he has to be platooned, we gave away a starting catcher for him.  And we sent a message to
 all " home grown Yankee prospects;"  You don't mean nothing to us!

In addition, the PR shots of Hicks sent to NYC for this news item showed, to my eyes, an out of shape guy.  Overweight and puffy.  I should know, and I do.  So he is likely slower afoot, and slower with his swing than Cashman was led to believe.

Here is the point;  This move is not a game changer!  This trade means nothing for the Yankees, unless Sanchez beats out McCann and is our starting catcher for most of the season.  If not, we simply acquired another lame back-up, and we overpaid to get him.

And since we all know that the Yankees always play the big money contracts, no matter how crappy and unproductive they are, no matter if their presence on the field actually hurts the Yankee's prospects for winning, the Beltrans, the A-Rods, the McCanns, the Ellsburys will always be out there.

Striking out, hitting into double plays, failing to advance runners, representing no threat on the base paths, bungling fly balls.  Our big money guys.

IT GETS WORSE....I JUST READ, CASHMAN SAYS GREG BIRD IS GOING STRAIGHT TO SCRANTON IN 2016.....CASHMAN IS IN CHARGE....LIKE I KEEP SAYING, IT'S THESE KIND OF DECISIONS (AND TRADES) HE'S MAKING, THAT ARE KILLING THIS FRANCHISE.

I have been traveling for work but if the Bird news is true (as expected and discussed on this page previously), I seriously think we should all find a new team. The joke's on us.

As Bird goes, Refsnyder to follow is not an impossible move for Cashman.

UNBELIEVABLE.....

I was horrified to read the same thing about Bird, with the usual BS rhetoric about " playing every day, etc"

Cashman forces us to hope that players like Tex and McCann, Beltran and Arod get injured early and often.

I promise you: the second baseman will not be Refsnyder. And that sucks.

Cashman is the ebola virus of this franchise.

If Bird goes to Scranton, that will demoralize the entire minor league system. Our front office are a bunch of clowns, and clueless ones at that. But one thing the Yanks will lead the AL in again is excuses and empty promises from the geriatric set that they "have to play better". What happened to getting younger and more athletic? What, do they think because Tex says by November he'll be 100%, he will remain that way all thru 2016? Gimme a break.

Trade Greg Bird? Am I mistaken or was he the solitary shining light at season's end? Makes no sense.

They don't sit millionaires. That's a strict fact of this Yankee organization. If they guy ahead of you on the depth chart has a broker, all you can do is grab a broom and look busy.

I hate this team. After almost 50 years of loving them, I really hate them.

Alphonso said...

It is Cashman we should hate. It is the Cashman baby we should rue. Not the Curt Schilling baby.

WHAT CASHMAN AND OUR "DECISION MAKERS" DON'T REALIZE IS...WHEN YOU SEND A GUY DOWN LIKE GREG BIRD ONCE HE HIMSELF (AND EVERYONE ELSE) KNOWS HE IS READY FOR THE BIG LEAGUES ......THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT: 1). HIS HOPE AND CONFIDENCE WON'T BE SHAKEN. 2). HE WON'T GET HURT IN SCRANTON 3.) HE WON'T REGRESS, TRYING TOO HARD TO GET BACK TO THE BIG CLUB.... AND 4.) IN REGRESSING, THE POSSIBILITY EXISTS OF A WHOLE SEASON (2016) WOULD BE WASTED.......... ANOTHER DISASTROUS DECISION, BY OUR RESIDENT "GENIUS", BRIAN CASHMAN, AND OUR BRILLIANT "DECISION MAKERS"!!!! ..LETS GIVE IT UP FOR THEM!!!!

JUST SIMPLY GO BACK TO THE DISASTER OF THE ALL STAR BREAK THIS PAST SEASON!...ROB REFSNYDER GETS CALLED UP TO PLAY 2ND BASE FOR A 3 GAME SERIES IN BOSTON....HE PLAYS WELL, AND EVEN HITS A CLUTCH HOME RUN TO PROVIDE THE WINNING RUN FOR US IN ONE OF THE GAMES, HE FIELDS WELL ENOUGH, AND DOESN'T HURT US DEFENSIVELY IN EITHER GAME...WE BEAT BOSTON 2 OF 3, BUT WE SHOCKINGLY SEND REFSNYDER BACK DOWN TO SCRANTON TO START THE 2ND HALF OF THE SEASON......WHAT HAPPENED?...HE REGRESSED....OBVIOUSLY, REFSNYDER WAS MENTALLY HURT, AND POSSIBLY CRUSHED, AT THE DEMOTION BECAUSE HE SLUMPED TO HIT ONLY IN THE .220's THE REST OF THE WAY IN SCRANTON.....I DON'T BELIEVE HE HAS EVER HIT THAT LOW, AT ANY LEVEL SO FAR IN HIS CAREER.......IT'S AMAZING HOW WE DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM THIS SITUATION!...IT JUST HAPPENED MONTHS AGO!!!!! NOW, WE MAY DO THE SAME MOTHERFUCKING THING TO BIRD!.....I'M GONNA GO FUCKING NUTS.....(SORRY ABOUT THE CONSTANT CURSING-BUT THEY'RE KILLING US WITH THESE ASININE DECISIONS).....

Cashman, and the current Yankee ownership, don't have any sense of the mental side of baseball. Because none of them were ever chosen to be on either side in pick-up games, when they were kids.

They only know the money side. And Hal is waiting for these old guy contracts to expire, and then he will spend that " freed-up" money. That is it.

" If this guy gets paid $25 million a year, he must play. Otherwise, why are we paying him that much? Why did we bid against ourselves to sign him to a 10 year contract, when the whole world knew his best days were over?"

We are doomed as fans, rooting for this franchise anymore. It is run by dolts.
